Item Description
13" tall puppet with plush/fur-covered body, soft vinyl head and yarn "mane." c. 1950s. Soupy Sales' earliest show was "Lunch With Soupy Sales" and this puppet was sold to Andy as Pookie the Lion, an actual show-used puppet. Archival photos show at least 3 versions of Pookie puppet, earliest photos appear to show this particular one. Fur-covered body shows wear with some loss of fur covering. Yarn "mane" has some staining and has come loose on puppet's right-hand side. Face shows aging with some paint scuffing to muzzle. VG. A chance to own a piece of TV history from this iconic show. From the Andy Levison Collection.
